Thread: screw linux! :P

    Re:screw linux! :P started all wrong. sure you can run windows on that computer, but start with an old pentium 100-200mhz box. install slack8.1 on there, you dont even have to run a GUI. buy a book or read through some docs

    i started with corel on a pentium 166 with a 2 meg vid card and 32 megs of ram..i wish i would have started with slack on that box.

    but, if your just beginning, dont start with linux on a fast computer....

    the least you could do is run win98 or win2k.

    XP sucks.

    alright then run along, its ok , maybe next time. but on the side, i play counter strike, and my network sets itself up. i have better FPS than i ever did in windows, i haven't crashed to date, and i don't have any manuals. I would also have to have cement shoes and placed in a car crusher to be helpless.

    Just try finding some docs on X and see if they help

    I have wiped out my XP OS a couple of times when experimenting with Linux.
    However when you are learning something new you will always make mistakes that is where this type of forum is invaluable.
    I ask all sorts of stupid questions but nearly always get the right answer.
    The people in the Linux forums must have the patience of saints.
    So do not give up.
